FOLK ART WALL DOLL # 3 ...

"no name" - paper mache and fabric - 28" tall
Doll # 3 is completed and I love the brightness of it. I do need some help from you, my readers. I would like some name suggestions from you! Any ideas?
Doll # 4 is in process on my work table. I will give you a hint: she has wings!

How about something that suggests she's NOT feeling the blues? There's so much life in her! She's my favorite - so far...

Mine too!

She'a great! I imagine naming them may be more difficult than making them. Definitely something cheerful!

Thanks Deborah! Sometimes the name presents itself almost as soon as the design starts to take place. Othert times, it just escapes me! The right name will appear I am sure.

Your dolls get better and better. I do not name dolls..The people who buy them love to name them. However it helps to jot down names while working on them. Song titles/news headlines/something in another language are some ideas to get the naming done. Cheers d

Thanks Dee! Roy has named her "TresJean". I Like it!

TresJean Prejean... she looks like a Prejean.

I've bred, raised, trained Welsh ponies ~ always named them, but more like the name coming to me when they "named" themselves. Not naming them would have been unthinkable, like hey you black mare #3. If you get the right name, the new owners won't need or want to rename.

I agree Vanessa. To not attempt a name would seem wrong to me. I get totally annoyed with the artist who names her work "untitled #45". The excuse is that the artist doesn't want to influence the person who is viewing the work. I think that is just a real big lazy-ass excuse! Just my opinion of course.

Oh, this is my very favorite so far, but then, that is my favorite color. My dolls don't so much name themselves as they title themselves, and it usually sings into my brain as I work on them.
I see her and think "Honeysuckle Blues" but have no reason for it.

(hey)Jude said...

Hi Sue! I like how your brain works! And I like that name. This seems to be a popular doll so maybe I am getting better at dolls! But, they are nothing like your beautiful ones. Those are magic!

Garabu with a hard G sound. (gahrahboo) Don't ask me why that name...I just heard it in my head! LOL Hey! If you ever want weird names...You can count on me for that, I guess! ;)
Glad to see you so active in your creations and thanks for all the inspiration you give to us all with your how-to tips.
Oh dear...I just read that Roy named her already. Well, that's ok. Maybe you'll need my weird name for something else in the future. Heh heh Oh, and here's another one for you...Namutu...just in case you create a pair of something.
